    Default P1 to Waterhole sink :)

    Happy Birthday to me ! Well, just did my first dive from P1 to the Waterhole. What a beautiful and diverse cave. Vis was about 30-40ft. The basin of P1 was as high, and as clear as I have seen in the last 4 years. The water was up to the 3rd or 4th step. I wish I brought my data cable for my camera, but I think I left it at home. Oh well, gotta post some pics when I get back. Orange Grove is covered in duck weed, but looks great once you get on the mainline.

    Did you like the big boulder that has fallen on the line at Waterhole? Makes me think it would be hard to get in/out via Waterhole...

    Dude, that is sooo funny you mention that. I saw it and it freeked me out a bit. I had to take a long pause before pressing on and doing my safety stop. My buddy was thinking, "what the hell are you doing man !" . . . it made me think twice ! Really a fun dive, and quite a workout for my ears

    Picture of the water at the 4th step at P1, and duckweed all over the top of Waterhole.
